Thread: Is my tragus too close to the edge?

  1. #1

    Default Is my tragus too close to the edge?

    On the front it looks fine, but the back ball(which is a pretty small ball) is right on the edge it feels like?

    Sorry xopiercingsxo,
    Your links are for your local drive so pix cannot be viewed. I'm sure one of the moderators will be able to advise.

    Hard to tell as the photos are pretty poor quality.
    It does look like it has been pierced too close to the edge of your tragus at the back.
    It should go straight through from front to back. Anatomy might necessitate it being a little at an angle.

    Better photos or some measurements and we can say for sure.

    The angle looks odd but that might just be the low res photo or the angle of the camera.

    The jewellery is way way too long though. I suggest you go see a very good piercer for a second opinion.

    I agree with Yv's & Boo's responses above.
    How recent is the piercing?
    Have you been back to have a chat with your piercer about your concerns as any pro should be happy to advise on their work and check the health of the site too?
    If it is slightly askew and so long as it heals without any problems then it may lend itself nicely to a ring. Personally I think that could look pretty cool but it's how you feel that counts

    I got it just 2 weeks ago. And yeah, I need a new phone seeing as it doesn't take good quality pictures(I hate that, seeing as I am a photographer). When I put the ball to the back of my tragus(when I move it through), it feels like its in the middle but yet its so close to the edge. Maybe I just got a small tragus?

    Personally, I would pop back to your piercer or, like Boo said above, seek a second opinion.
    My piercer asks us to go back for a check up after 2 weeks as part of her service.
    Try not to move it unnecessarily too. Just stick to good aftercare procedures.
